Florence’s Jamey DuBose has not been offered the Gadsden City head football coaching job, a Gadsden City High School source said Monday evening.
A report by the TimesDaily on Monday said that DuBose, who just ended his first season at the helm of the Falcons, had received an offer to replace Joe Billingsley, who resigned in November.
The TimesDaily report quoted Florence High School Athletics Director Byron Graham as saying Gadsden City had made a “lucrative offer” to DuBose.
The Gadsden City source confirmed DuBose is a finalist for the position, but no official offer has been made and DuBose is “among several others” who still are being considered.
The source said a hire should take place “in the next couple of weeks.”
DuBose has a career record of 59-28, including a 7-4 record with Florence in 2012. The Falcons reached the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
Prior to taking the Florence job, DuBose was the head coach at Prattville, where he replaced current Jacksonville State head coach Bill Clark after the 2007 season. During his four years with the Lions, he went 42-13 with Class 6A state championships in 2008 and 2011 and a state runner-up spot in 2010.
DuBose served as Prattville’s offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007 before getting the head coaching position when Clark left to become the defensive coordinator at South Alabama.
In 2002 and 2003, DuBose was the head coach at Susan Moore, where he went 10-11.
